CINE Y MUCHO, MUCHO CINE.

  1. Downtown Los Angeles. Made on 2/12/12. Shot and edited on the iPhone 4S.

    When one hears the word 'Broadway', many associations come to mind. Lights. People. The center of it all. While a badly needed facelift has come to downtown Los Angeles in recent years, the one great exception has been Broadway, which is home to many of the architectural landmarks and historic movie theaters. Thankfully, there is much talk of restoring Broadway to the cutural center it once was.

    Music - Brian Eno (artist), Ambient 1:Music for Airports (album), 1/1 (song)

  2. Home Movie Day 2011 at OMCA included two components. First, home movies were submitted by the public, inspected by film archivists, and screened in the Museum's state-of-the-art James Moore Theater. As the films played, their owners narrated the action—a sampling of which included a 1940 Egyptian wedding (the family later immigrated to Berkeley), an outing of young ladies in Yosemite in the 1930s, and a child's princess-themed birthday party in Buenos Aires in 1952, complete with a marionette performance.

    The second part of the program presented home movie treasures from the collection of the African American Museum and Library at Oakland (AAMLO). Shot in Berkeley and Oakland by Ernest Beane, the films depict Beane's friends, neighbors, and colleagues at the Pullman Palace Car Company.

CINE Y MUCHO, MUCHO CINE.

Angel Manuel Fernandez Corral

"Sepan aquellos que no estan al corriente
que el Roxy, del que estoy hablando, fue
un cine de reestreno preferente
que iluminaba la plaza de Lesseps.
Echaban NO-DO y dos péliculas de esas
que tu detestas y me chiflan a mi,
llenas de amores

"Sepan aquellos que no estan al corriente
que el Roxy, del que estoy hablando, fue
un cine de reestreno preferente
que iluminaba la plaza de Lesseps.
Echaban NO-DO y dos péliculas de esas
que tu detestas y me chiflan a mi,
llenas de amores imposibles y
pasiones desatadas y violentas.
Villanos en cinemascope.
Hermosas damas y altivos
caballeros del sur
tomaban el té en el Roxy
cuando apagaban la luz.
Era un tipico local de medio pelo
como el Excelsior, como el Maryland
al que a mi gusto le faltaba un gallinero
con bancos de madera, olindo a zotal.
mirandose en sus ojos claros
y el patio de butacas
apaludio con frenesí
en la penunbra del Roxy
cuando ella dijo que sí
Yo fui uno de los que lloraron
cuando anunciaron su demolición
con un cartel de: "Nuñes y Navarro
próximamente en este salón"
En medio de una roja polvareda
el Roxy dio su ultima finción
y malherido como King-Kong
se desplomó la fachada en la acera
y en su lugar han instalado
la agencia número 33
del Banco Central
Sobre las ruinas del Roxy
juega al palé el capital
Pero de un tiempo acá, en el banco, ocurren cosas
a las que nadie encuentra explicación
Un vigilante nocturno asegura
que un transatlantico atraveso el hall
y en cubierta Fred Astaire y Ginger Rogers
se marcaban "el continental"
Atravesó la puerta de cristal
y se perdió en dirección a Fontana
Y como pólvora encendida
por Gracia y por La Salud
esta corriendo la voz
que los fantasma del Roxy
son algo más que un rumor.
Cuentan que al ver a Clark Gable en persona
en la cola de la ventanilla dos
con su sonrisa ladeada y socarrona,
una cajera se desparramó
Y que un oficinista de primera, interino
sorprendió al mismisimo Glenn Ford
en el despacho del interventor
abofeteando a una rubia platino
Asi que no se espante, amigo,
se esperando el autobus
le pide fuego George Ralt
Son los fantasma del Roxy
que no descansan en paz"
Joan Manuel Serrat.
